Today's Action Alert
Today's Actions comes from NRDC -- and it's easy. NRDC is starting a blog that will focus on efforts to prevent the Bush administration from destroying the environment. Check out their new blog today and bookmark it so you can visit frequently.
Dear NRDC Action Fund Supporter,
Right now, the Bush Administration and its allies in Congress are working to
pass sweeping, pro-industry legislation that would sacrifice our heritage and
health for decades to come.
For all of us at the NRDC Action Fund, that can mean only one thing: it's time
to fight back. Now more than ever, we need to protect our precious wildlands
from drilling, defend our clean air and water from pollution and take urgently
needed action to stop and reverse global warming.
But we can't do it without building a bigger and stronger community of people
Last week, we launched a Blog -- an interactive, online diary -- to serve as a
gathering place for everyone who wants to stop the Bush Administration's
outrageous assaults on our environment:
Hosted by the NRDC Action Fund's own Frances Beinecke, the Blog will give you
the chance to exchange comments, participate in online chats and -- most
importantly -- get organized to take action. With personal reflections and a
fresh look at the issues, Frances will call attention to the dangers posed by
the Bush Administration's policies and tell you about what you can do to help
Beginning tomorrow, Laurie David -- NRDC Action Fund trustee, co-founder of the
Detroit Project and wife of comedy writer Larry David -- will be our first
featured guest blogger. And stay tuned, because some of the most eloquent and
active voices in the environmental movement will soon follow in her footsteps
as guest bloggers.
Please visit the NRDC Action Fund Blog daily at http://blog.nrdcactionfund.org/
and get involved.
Thanks to people like you, I am optimistic that we will succeed in defending
America's natural heritage for ourselves and all future generations.
